Ufone has partnered with brands such as: McDonald’s, Cinnabon, Dunkin’ Donuts, Tutti Frutti, CrossRoads, Timberland, Crocs, Adidas, Hush Puppies, Swatch, Dell, The Body Shop, Accessorize and Merle Norman to provide discounts to Uth Pack customers on shopping.
The Ufone Uth Pack website shows discounts from 10-15% on different items, but the mechanism to avail these discounts is not described. I think Ufone will use Olaround service for these discounts. We will update you once we get more information about this.
The Launch of Uth Pack:
Ufone launched the Uth Pack with giving 800 free movie passes for the Iron Man 3 premier in Pakistan. Users were randomly selected from its Facebook fan page and passes were issued for Lahore, Karachi & Islamabad.
Ufone is also running a campaign for Booking your Uth Pack number on Facebook, In this promotion company is giving a chance to win 2 new Samsung Galaxy S4 handsets to the BMN users. Sadly the Book my number service is currently not working, we are not sure if its due to server overload or corrupt database.
So what do you think about Ufone’s yet another attempt to grab attention of Pakistani youth. Do you think Uth Pack can compete with similar offers like Jazba, Glow and Djuice or the previous Ufone Uth Package? For me its nothing new, except the discount offers on shopping. Make sure you leave a comment, we love to hear your views!
